    Calling all foodies in Singapore! Brace yourselves for a burst of local flavors as McDonald’s introduces its much-awaited Nasi Lemak Burger back on the menu for 2023. This limited-time offering coincides perfectly with the celebration of Singapore National Day, making it a truly special treat for both residents and visitors alike. With a revamped sambal sauce recipe and tantalizing twists to the classic chicken patty, this burger is all set to satisfy your cravings for an authentic Nasi Lemak experience.

    The Sweet Turned Savory

    One of the most exciting changes to the Nasi Lemak Burger is the revamped sambal sauce. Departing from the previous sweet rendition, the new sambal now boasts a delightful savory flavor that truly encapsulates the essence of Nasi Lemak. With a touch of heat and a perfect blend of spices, it leaves a memorable taste that brings you straight to the hawker stalls of Singapore. The sauce even manages to capture the authentic taste of ikan bilis (anchovies), adding that extra umami kick to every bite.

    A Pattie Worth Savoring

    McDonald’s has taken the challenge of perfecting the chicken patty, and the result is something truly delightful. Unlike the usual oily meat patty found in their McSpicy burger, the Nasi Lemak Burger’s chicken pattie is a lot less greasy. It remains tender, juicy, and seasoned to perfection, complementing the sambal sauce impeccably. Together with two slices of fresh, crunchy cucumbers, the burger achieves a harmonious balance of flavors and textures that will leave your taste buds craving for more.

    The Sidekicks

    No burger feast is complete without the perfect accompaniments. McDonald’s offers a delightful array of side dishes to elevate your Nasi Lemak Burger experience. The Potato Wedges, subtly seasoned and addictively delicious, make for a perfect companion to the star of the show. For those seeking a refreshing beverage, the Bandung Frappe is a must-try. Its sweet and smooth blend will surely cool you down on a sunny Singaporean day.

    The Dessert Dilemma

    While the Potato Wedges and Bandung Frappe received high praise, the same cannot be said for the Cocoa-nut Pie. A stark departure from the satisfying apple pie found on McDonald’s usual menu, the Cocoa-nut Pie failed to impress. Its filling, though creamy, tasted unnaturally artificial, leaving us yearning for the comfort of the classic apple pie instead.

    Pricing and Availability

    For those tempted to try this delectable creation, the Nasi Lemak Burger is available a la carte for S$8.30. If you opt for an Extra Value Meal, the price is S$9.30. For the hungrier souls out there, the Nasi Lemak Burger Feast is available from S$11.50. This set includes the burger, Potato Wedges, a Cocoa-nut Pie, and a small Coke Zero. But hurry! This limited-time offering will only be available in stores from July 27th.


    In conclusion, McDonald’s 2023 Nasi Lemak Burger is a delightful ode to Singapore’s culinary heritage. The revamped sambal sauce and tweaked chicken patty make for a mouthwatering combination that will transport you to the heart of Nasi Lemak goodness. Paired with their signature Potato Wedges and a refreshing Bandung Frappe, it’s a celebration of flavors that every foodie must experience. Just be sure to skip the Cocoa-nut Pie and savor the true essence of this local favorite. So head on over to McDonald’s and treat yourself to a truly Singaporean delight while it lasts!
